it was ok
bookshelves: nonfiction, cookbook
Read in January, 2010

I'm sure it's a great book and all, but I lost interest immediately after the first few pages because of the misnomer. At first it talks about local and sustainable eating practices which is all fine and good...but then the following names of the recipes and the ingredients/methods required were ANYTHING but Simple. The word I would use is "fancy." But, everyone else who reviewed said the recipes are TOO simple. Are we talking about the same book? Maybe I happened across a few recipes with ingredients I've never heard of? I guess that's what I get for reading a few pages in the front, randomly picking a few in the middle, and then closing the book.
